JewelGurl tipped me off that there's now an official video for Weezer's "Pork and Beans". If you're up to date on your viral YouTube videos, you'll recognize a number of the faces in this vid, from Tay Zonday to Chris Crocker and Miss Teen South Carolina. =w=
This is a new Radiohead video, and it's pretty good. Radiohead's In Rainbows actually gets better with every subsequent listen, and I'd be submitting this for SLS consideration except we only allow one song per artist and I'm reserving that spot for "Jigsaw Falling Into Place". It's two children with
Today is the perfect day to share my favourite song from the first band I saw live in concert, Chalk Circle. April Fool
This is The Pogues with The Dubliners performing "Irish Rover". Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Throughout the day, I made four trips outdoors to shovel this snow. It's coming down so hard right now, I'm just going to leave it for the night and get it all tomorrow morning. I'm not complaining about all this snow, I actually don't mind shovelling, I'm just impressed by
Do you remember the Sean Connery movie Finding Forrester? It wasn't a bad little film, I recall enjoying it at the time, but today the first thing I remember about the movie is the song that played during the closing credits. It was "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" and "What A
This was BoingBoing'd the other day, so you may have seen it already. It's a cool new video from Canadian band the New Pornographers. It's a visual grilled cheese sandwich on a cold, snowy day.
In addition to My Hootastic Cross to Bear I must confess to another guilty pleasure from the 1990s. I'm throwing this out there in the hopes that my full disclosure will absolve me from all sin. In 1997, Christian-ish rock band Creed released their debut album My Own Prison. Creed
I loved the first Everyday Normal Guy rap song from Jon Lajoie and HhDotCom tells me there's a sequel. Here's the very funny and very NSFW Everyday Normal Guy 2.
retroCRUSH posted the best duets ever, so I've decided to follow their lead and throw down my top ten duets. I've disqualified all duets from bands that are naturally duets. For example, Simon & Garfunkel, Sonny & Cher and Stars. Here are my favourite ten. 10. Eminem and Dido -
Eddie Vedder has unveiled his first solo music video for "Guaranteed," taken from his Into the Wild soundtrack. My brother lent me this soundtrack on Christmas Day and I love it. As a long time Pearl Jam fan, I remember when they stopped making videos. The video for "Jeremy" was
I'm emotionally drained. Today I attended a company breakfast and some speeches, attended a funeral, visited the cemetery, attended the reception, met up with some colleagues for more speeches and a seemingly never ending dinner at Canyon Creek filled with good food and big laughs. I'm winding down with Scotch
Kingston, Ontario's Bedouin Soundclash did an awesome cover of U2's "New Year's Day". Enjoy.
Oh 2007, where have you gone? It seems like only a year ago you showed up, all fresh and new. Now, it's time to say goodbye. It wasn't easy trying to come up with my ten favourite songs from 2007. I had "Nature of the Experiment" from Tokyo Police Club
One of my favourite songs of the year is "Take Me To The Riot" from Stars. It's just a great little ditty. Here's the video. The Stars are responsible for one of my favourite songs of all-time. I don't remember the last time I synced my iPod without including "Your
I shared The Pogues' "Fairytale of New York" earlier in the month as a weekly MP3. Normally I only host MP3s for seven days before yanking them, but dammit, this is Christmas, so you can still grab it if you haven't already. If you can't wait to hear this holiday
Is there really only a week until Christmas? Holy crap. Here's a little something from me to you. It's Wham's "Last Christmas". Don't pretend you're not ecstatic.
After hearing It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back for the first time, I couldn't believe my ears. I had finally found music that got my heart pumping, my head banging and my mind racing all at once. A standout track on that phenomenal album is "Bring
While riding the subway today, I called myself "Mr. Metro". The dialogue in my head was about eco-friendly modes of transportation and with metro being the French word for subway, the term Mr. Metro came naturally. (Note to self: check yourself into a mental institution for observation). So I'm calling
The Sweet Hereafter, a great Atom Egoyan film, features a cover of The Tragically Hip's "Courage" sung by Sarah Polley. I've always liked this haunting reworking of the tune and meant to share this video some time ago.
During Thanksgiving turkey at my mom's house, the conversation turned to The Rheostatics. Actually, the conversation turned to Old Mill Donuts and then The Rheostatics, but the devil is in the details. I told Steve my favourite Rheostatics song was "Record Body Count" and promised to share the video in
I've been helping Buffalo Boy start up his own blog. I just popped over to see how he's doing and I was delighted to find this entry in which he shares The Rheostatics' "The Ballad of Wendel Clark, Part 1&2". If you remember Etobicoke in the mid-80s, watching
Here's everyone's favourite guilty pleasure. On this day, you want to skip on over to the 3:37 mark. Holy cow!
I'm all about one-stop shopping. The sole purpose of this entry is to give me easy access to every Tragically Hip video from one convenient page. Here, in chronological order, is every Tragically Hip video. For more on The Hip, visit my Tragically Hip page. Last American ExitSmall Town BringdownBlow
